Go Yankees!

Above is a photo of the Yankee patch that is sewn on my sons valance in his "Yankee" room. Baseball season is here, and with that comes lots of practices, games, tournaments, fund raisers, and watching the Yankees on the tube, along with the annual trip to Seattle to watch the Yankees play the Mariners. We are a baseball family and we love the sport!!!

Below is a challenge I took from another blogger, Chad. Challenged to answer all the questions so here I go!!!

1. If you could spend a day with any living celebrity, who would it be and why?
I think that would have to be Ellen Degeneres. I love her look on life, her humor, and the way she can make anyone feel comfortable. I think a day with her would be fun, and uplifting!

2. If you could spend a day with any living music celebrity, who would it be and why?
My first thought would be Toby Keith cause he is my favorite singer right now. But I think I would actually have to pick Reba McEntire. She is a classy lady and I think we could have some really fun chats!
3. What place have you visited that has effected you the most and why?

Trip to Washington DC to see all the historic sites. Changing of the guards, Mt Vernon, Lincoln Memorial. Really made me feel proud, and I love learning about history.

4. Who’s the closest friend you ever had in your life thus far?
Besides my husband, that is pretty much my friend for life, obviously. However, I never would have thought that we would be close today as we were in college, but I would have to say my friend Gabe. He is always there for me, we can talk about anything, and he is just a sweetheart.

5. How did you get into Blogging?
My friend Cyndie told me I had to start a blog, so I did, and I love it!!!

6. Are you an athlete? If so, what sport do you play or have played?
I am not an athlete, I guess I am too much of a girlie girl. I love to watch baseball, especially if my son is playing!

7. Favorite movie and why?
My favorite movie of all time is "The Wizard of Oz". I have loved it since I was a little girl, although the wicked witch scared me back then. I love the whole moral of the story, that there really is no place like home, and if you go looking for happiness and for people that love you, you need to look in your own backyard cause they are always there.

8. Favorite song and why?
A Lullabye my mom taught me when I was young called "Once a Giant"

Once a giant came a wandering, late at nite while the world was still,
Seeking for a stool to sit on; he climbed a little green hill.

When he reached the highest part of it; sat him down on its very peak,
Little hill cried out at once in a faint and far away squeek.

"Giant, Giant, I am under you; move or this is the last of me."
But the giant aswered, " Thank you, I like it here don't you see."

9. Most romantic date you’ve ever been on?
That would have to be the nite my husband proposed. He took me to a waterfall ( Multnomah Falls) and we walked around, and with the mist coming off the falls, he knelt down and said:
"Carie, I love you, will you be my wife, my lover and my friend forever?" I said yes and the rest is history!

10. What is your favorite car that you have owned?
That would be my very first car that my mom and my brother bought for me. A cute Silver 1975 Toyota Celica, with blue pinstripes and my name on the driver side door.
